Why Provide Anti-Money Laundering Training?

The United States, the European Union, and many other jurisdictions require businesses to implement strict policies and controls to prevent money laundering, terrorist financing, and the evasion of trade sanctions. To comply, businesses must enact “Know Your Customer” (KYC) processes to help employees identify suspicious activities. Businesses must also train their employees on how to comply with relevant laws and internal policies. Businesses and their employees who knowingly or unknowingly violate these laws can face severe civil and criminal penalties.

Customization and Languages

Instead of providing generic training, employers can customize this training by including:

  • Logo
  • An introductory audio or video message from their CEO or other senior official welcoming users to the course
  • Company-specific policies on anti-money laundering, counter-terrorist financing, and trade sanctions


At a modest cost, Clear Law can also modify the training to include scenarios that directly relate to the actual issues your employees may face.  Using “green screen” type technology, Clear Law is able to quickly and inexpensively change actors and backgrounds to create employer-specific scenarios.

Clear Law can provide this training in multiple languages as needed.
